Sept. 28, 2011 - PRLog -- Are you ready for personal growth, wonderful multi-cultured friendships and a heart warming Tibetan adventure in India? Spiritual Backpackers India are launching their spiritual tours in India to the home of the 14th Dalai Lama in exile with the first tour commencing 21st Oct - 7th Nov 2011.  Starting at the Tibetan quarter Majnu Ka Tilla in Delhi, the hosting team which comprises of an Irish woman called Lisa Tully and a Tibetan Lama called Lama Buga, takes the tours up the mountain to Dharamsala, India.  True magic begins to unfold then as the tour attends public teachings by the Dalai Lama and then onto a 10 day meditation retreat led by the monks and nuns of the Dalai Lama lineage.  The purpose of these tours is two fold.  Spiritual Backpackers India do this to help the Tibetan community in exile by bringing them work and by donating to the local community school, the Tibetan Children's village. And secondly, to afford people in the West the opportunity to bring greater peace and harmony into their busy lives by learning the skill of mediation from great Tibetan masters.

Dharamsala, the scenic Indian town with a beating Tibetan heart, is nestled high up in the Himalayan mountain tops.  Scattered about the peaks and troughs are many monasteries, nunneries and sacred retreats which all contribute to creating a high vibration.  The Dalai Lama's monastery is the focal point for thousands of global pilgrims as they flock to attend his public teachings there.  So strong is the power of this man's heart that Tibetans and Westerners alike can be seen going into deep states of meditation simply by being in his incredible presence. An authentic affect which is rarely seen or so deeply experienced at His Holiness' events in other parts of the world.  

The following is a video that clearly captures to richness of the Tibetan culture in Dharamsala:


The meditation retreat itself is a 10 day silent retreat that is held at the globally renowned Tushita centre.  Situated outside of the town centre, it provides a peaceful setting where the daily distractions can be forgotten and the time can be taken to go within and learn a skill that could potentially last and improve a lifetime.  The course itself is an introduction to Buddhist meditation and is suitable for beginners and experienced people alike.  Comprising of both sitting meditation and walking meditation, the backdrop of the centre itself provides a beautiful experience due to the many hidden stupas and Buddhist relics that are just waiting to be stumbled upon amongst the towering Himalayan trees.

To ensure the trips are all that could be hoped for and more, Lama Buga performs sacred Tibetan rituals or pujas with the group to bless the journey and its participants along the way.  Having such an authentic local host, who by the way is a perfect example of a laughing Buddha, means that from the moment of arrival participants of these spiritual tours in India are immersed in this 'Shangri-La' culture that for centuries has captivated the imagination of the world.
